The first player Alabama fans should be ready to watch this season is freshman wide receiver Jalen Hale. Jalen Hale has caught passes in the Middle Tennessee, Ole Miss, and Kentucky games and is a potential player we see gain more reps against Auburn and Georgia. The former four-star wide receiver flashed his big play ability against Ole Miss hauling in a 33-yard touchdown in the Crimson Tide’s win. Hale has appeared in nine out of ten games for the Alabama Football team but, only has catches in three of the games thus far.
The Alabama Football team has a clear top three at wide receiver with Jermaine Burton, Isaiah Bond, and Kobe Prentice receiving the vast majority of the snaps at wide receiver. However, in potential post-season play where the passing game will be more important the Alabama Football team will need another wide receiver or two to step up and become reliable targets for Jalen Milroe. I’d expect to see Jalen Hale get more snaps with the starters this week and potentially see a few other wide receivers who haven’t played much or at all yet get their shot with Jalen Milroe as well.
